Daddy, where are you?
Daddy, where are you? brings together over 70 photographs by Tierney Gearon. Set mainly in and around her mother’s home, the ostensible subject of Gearon’s ongoing series is the interaction between Gearon, her children and mother. Yet Gearon’s beautiful but strikingly raw photographs also narrate a story with a more expansive emotional force. It tells of the closeness as well as the profound distance between our loved ones and us. It is this psychological tension as well as her direct confrontation with one of photography’s enduring themes that distinguishes her from her contemporaries.
Daddy, Where Are You? combines revealing tableaux, garnered from Gearon’s observations of family outings and routines, with a sequence of portraits of her mother. Together they capture the impossibility of truly understanding the full nature of those we love.
